"I create words that inspire, inform, entertain, and get your message heard!"
Words are like a powerful magical potion. Words can lift somebody up; they can also tear them down.
Words can transform our emotions in an instant, and they can enlist us into their causes.
Words can shape our future and define our past.
With words, we create our own shortcomings and our own fortitude.
Words create actions!
I love the magic of words, and I relish helping others to see their magic too!
Whether you need words for your website, press release, brochure, advert or newsletter, I'm here to help!

Richmond Business Furniture
We asked Matt to help us with our marketing both online and through local media for our business move and rebranding. Matt is fun to deal with, and he worked hard to make sure we got the best service and outcome throughout the process. Matt made the whole experience easy and professional and built relationships with all involved. I would have no problem recommending Matt.

What a result. Matt has transformed our website. It is now a marketing tool to be proud of. His singular focus and determination to get it right was amazing, and his use of content and ideas through the development was fantastic. He has also used his skills to format video grabs for us to use on our social media, further driving traffic to our website. We have no hesitation in recommending Matt.

I've known Matt for a number of years and I know him to be articulate, honest and professional in everything he does. His customer service is second to none, and he has the skill of conveying fairly technical processes and distilling them in to easy to understand concepts. I would have no hesitation in recommending Matt!
ABOUT | MATT
| failed pop stardom
In '87, I decided to give this 'pop star thing' a go myself and formed the band Babayaga with Hamish MacColl (brother of Kirsty MacColl).
I'm not really sure what the hell happened, but amazingly we ended up signing to the legendary Fly Records (home of T-Rex, Procol Harum and The Move).
Babayaga was the first signing to the newly revived Fly label. However, we were dropped after only one single and most of our vinyl ended up in record store bargain bins across the nation.
Realising that I didn't have the required 'facial talent' to be the next teen heartthrob, I moved to the home for failed pop stars - music journalism.
I joined the music magazine International Musician & Recording World as a writer in early 1988, interviewing musicians including; Sinéad O'Connor, The Fall, The Mission, The Wonder Stuff, The Pet Shop Boys, and The Soup Dragons.
I became the title's editor In 1990, leaving in '91 to launch the UK version of the successful Australian heavy metal music mag, Hot Metal.
In 1994, I became freelance, which saw me regularly writing for popular UK music and teen magazines. I contributed interviews, reviews and articles for NME, Melody Maker, Smash Hits, Just Seventeen, Mizz, More, Bliss, Sugar, and Dolly.
I am the founder and editor-in-chief of the punk music magazine, Punktuation, and I'm currently writing a book about punk's musical and social history. (Due to be published in early 2022).
I continue to freelance today, focussing on B2B and B2C communication for SME's and specialise in content strategy and implementation across digital and print platforms.
I have a track record of achieving revenue gains for my customers through consulting and marketing initiatives.
